Removing the Stress of Money in Your Business – Step 2

Updated: Jan 21, 2021

Whenever I’m stressing about money in my business, my mind changes from an attitude of gratitude to a PANIC MODE of worrying where I’m going to get more money from.

I make rash decisions based on fear and stress. I’ll pull the trigger early on marketing campaigns, I’ll discount prices, and I’ll second-guess some of my hiring decisions and begin making cuts.

When the dust settles, and I’m back to normal, I’ll pat myself on the back for the decisions I made to get me out of that mini-crisis.

But here’s my problem. I’ve given credit to myself and to the money I was able to bring in as the savior of my problem. In all the stressing out, I pushed God on the side, took matters into my own hands, got myself out of the pit, and congratulated myself for it.

And I know I’m not the only one that does this.

As entrepreneurs, we are inherently alone in our businesses since we are in charge. And our human instinct of survival kicks in, and we operate I’m a panic to keep food on the table.

But if we truly desire to move away from stressing about money in our businesses, we need to understand what money is and what it is NOT.

The bible says

Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows. (James 1:17 NIV)

Money is a gift from God. Your business’s revenue is a blessing that he freely gives to Godpreneurs.
